Hi all,

I am starting to consider MBAs for next year but do not really have any idea how strong my profile is:
- Age: 26
- Dual national (one European country and one African country)
- Undergrad: Classe preparatoire + Grande Ecole in France (one of the top 3 Grande Ecole) + 6 months exchange in an Emerging country
- Job: 2 years m&a in a Bulge Bracket (top ranked both years) + 2 years in an African focused PE (based in an African country)
- GMAT: need to train for it, aiming 700+
- Extracurricular: 14 years playing football in a club, organized and supervised 2 trips for c.15 children in a foreign country
- Other:
- First member in my family to go to university
- (not that I like talking about it but since it had a strong influence on my life and behavior, I will be doing one the essay around this theme) Very close member (think parent) did 4 years of jail time while I was 18-23 yo leaving the other parent alone (and I do not come from a wealthy family), so I had to take care of my family (and still do).

Post-MBA goals: create my own company (will probable start during the first year of the MBA) or emerging markets PE

For now, I plan to apply to Stanford (dream school), HBS and Insead. Do you think I have a chance?

Thanks a lot

Yes, I do think that with a 700+ GMAT and a great application, you would be a viable candidate for Stanford – though it would remain a reasonable reach, as it is for every qualified applicant. Stanford’s GMATs tend to be pretty high, but you clearly are qualified and you have numerous other positive and differentiating (and impressive) factors in your application, so I believe a low 700s score would suffice.

And of course you’d be qualified for other top programs as well. And I emphasize that the key will be stellar applications to do justice to your candidacy – a must when applying to schools where you are competing literally with the best in the world.
